What are good books for a comprehensive introduction to the history of art? Particularly looking for something that stresses how the evolution of art fits into the larger philosophical development of European culture.
Bit offtopic, but I find Waterhouse to be one of the greats, and I feel like he never gets the attention he deserves, or maybe I just prefer his style of paintings over that of Picasso or Dali.
Do you know any historical moments where the bad guy won? Most of the times dictators etc. seem to be killed off eventually. Only ones I remember dying from old age while still being in power is Franco and Stalin.
Was the height of a man as glorified in older times, no matter what century, as it is nowadays? Did people offer you certain jobs, special military units or anything else? Did shorter people have it worse in any way, or was it completely irrelevant? If so, when did height become such an important thing in most societies nowadays?
>special military units
The First King of Prussia was obsessed with tall guardsmen. There was a height requirement to be a Prussian Guard to the King.
Also Grenadiers were big men since the belief being large cunts can throw grenades further. Eventually Grenade throwing was phased out and Grenadiers were just selected for their physical strength as they were shock troops and expected to ace in hand2hand combat.
Dump, Discuss, etc
I'll be posting some, feel free to contribute.
Is intellectual discourse really just shitposting using fancy words?
no it is fancyposting about useless shit
What do those who believe in a singular creator generally think their creator was doing before he started creating?
Is the Irish famine considered a genocide?
Yes. From what ive read they even had military escorts to make sure starving people wouldnt attack the shipments. Usually when theres a famine in a country they ban exporting food. Of course during the famine no such ban was put because the merchants were being whiny about profits.
It's not a story Plato would tell you. It's a Cynic legend.
is this a controversial subject among academics?
of course not, it was a fucking famine. is ethiopia a fucking genocide by us, because we don't give them enough food for all of them to survive?
also picrelated (starved man in Harkiv, Ukraine - 1932), they all look wellfed to me, the guy probably died of alcohol poisoning.
That's controversial because since most academics are leftists who would love to destroy their own independent landowner class (just see how much hate American intellectuals can spew against Southerh Whites) they absolute love the concept of dekulakization, so the end result of this policy being the death of millions of people is very uncomfortable for them to defend. They either ignore it hoping it will go away or they try to invent bullshit reasons to excuse Stalin (that was popular in the 1980s, see the works of Sheila Fitzpatrick, but then the Soviet Union fell, the archives were opened and they were left discredited).
So no, the holodomor is not considered a genocide by the intelligentsia, some countries consider based on political reasons but that's not enough. In 100 years no one will remember the Holodomor because only things that make the left stand in good light are worth remembering by intellectuals and since they will want to kill the kulaks again before the end of the century (see Salon's obsession with anti-racism and anti-white bigotry) they will have to pretend the last time they tried it never happened and it never went wrong.
I love polish history. I've recently begun to write a fictional story based on early 13th century poland. Despite most modern poles being highly autistic, I think polish history is one of the greatest stories ever. How about some interesting historical facts about poland? I'd personally like some interesting info on 13th century polish principalities but anything goes really. I love it all.
>Polish nobility believed they were descended from migrating Iranians and convinced the Lithuanians that they were too.
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Living in Chicago, which has a higher polish population than poland, I can tell most poles apart from humans by the shape of their head. All poles I've met have had potato shaped heads.
If my fathers grandfather was a Berber from Algier, but since 3 generations we are living in Germany and his son and grandson only had children with European women. Am I considered European?
Tell me, without using memes, why this isn't the greatest philosopher since the classical times.
It's obviously Descartes. Founder of modern philosophy, and creator of modern rationalism, the philosophical basis for the scientific method, which is the one objectively positive achievement of philosophy.
